Minnesota Senator Announces Hearing on Marriage Amendment Title Wording

 

The Faribault Daily News (emphasis ours):

State Senator Mike Parry (R β€” Waseca) announced Monday he will convene a meeting of the State Government Innovation and Veterans Committee on Friday.

β€œIn light of recent developments, the committee expects Secretary of State Mark Ritchie and State Attorney General Lori Swanson to explain their involvement surrounding the constitutional amendment questions on the November ballot,” said Senator Parry in a release.

Voters will weigh in on two proposed amendments this November, one which would add the definition of marriage as a union of a man and woman to the constitution, and another that would change the constitution to require voters to present a valid photo ID at the polls.

The meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will be held in room 123 of the State Capitol.
